WEDDINGS AND CELEBRATIONS
Penpont is the perfect venue for you to host your wedding reception either within the Stables or in a marquee on the front lawn.
We only ever aim to do one wedding per weekend so we can guarantee you exclusive use of Penpont from midday on the Friday to midday on the Sunday. This gives you time to create your own style of wedding from arranging flowers to putting up decorations & table arranging.
For numbers less than 80 The Stables are ideal. There is a dining room with tables & chairs, a commercial kitchen, bar area, party/dance room, and WCs & cloakroom all under one roof. Please refer to our STABLES page.
For numbers greater than 80 people a marquee can be erected on the lawn in front of Penpont house. We have a number of local marquee companies that have worked here, and we leave that decision entirely to you. Marquee companies will quote you for internal fittings, flooring, wall linings, supply of furniture, supply of mobile generator and electrical installations.
We have hosted many weddings and celebrations over the past years, and we are very happy to work alongside you to make sure that all the finer details are covered, to ensure a memorable and happy day. We offer a personalised service from the initial meeting to the end of the celebration, to ensure your plans are met, and your wedding day is everything that you dreamt it would be.
We also offer the use of the Drawing and Dining Room in the main house, to gather your guests at the start of the reception for a welcome drink and canapes.
Please note that we review all our prices annually. Contact us for terms in future years.
We are now licenced to hold civil ceremonies here at Penpont. We have listed several sites within our Licence. Two are within the main house and two within the Stables. We also have a designated outside area at the front of the house.
Cost for civil ceremony in 2013: £450.00 (this does not include the Registrar's fee)
Our entertainment licence runs until midnight.
The self-catering Courtyard Wing is very convenient for on site accommodation. See our accommodation page.
Camping is also available on site.

“I knew Penpont was the right place for us instantly and my gut instincts were not wrong as the setting was absolutely perfect for us and set the tone for the whole day. You were so welcoming and lovely and we hope to stay in touch and visit the place for years to come as it has now become so special in our hearts”. - Amy Armitage July 2009
